Shut Up and Write

Mon 4 Nov 2019, 10:00 - 12:00
Alan Gilbert Learning Commons Training Room (-104)


Shut Up and Write is an event in which researchers come together for a fixed amount of time and write. During this time there is no talking, no internet, no reading... just writing. It is a great way to carve out dedicated writing time and make progress on those thesis chapters, journal articles, or grant applications.

Whilst two hours doesn't sound like much, it is amazing what you can get done if you really focus. There will be short, scheduled breaks (with free tea, coffee and snacks) in between writing sessions of 35 minutes, to help keep you motivated and on-task.

The room will be open at least five minutes prior to the session. Please arrive early enough to allow yourself time to settle in before the session starts.

Don't forget your laptop!
